Kosovo votes for new war crimes court| Reuters

PRISTINA Kosovo's parliament voted to change the constitution on Monday and create a war crimes court, which the West wants to try ethnic Albanian former guerrillas for alleged war crimes including organ harvesting. The vote was held just one month after parliament first tried to approve the creation of the court, seen by many Kosovo Albanians as an attempt to tarnish their 1998-99 guerrilla war against Serbian rule. The constitutional changes were endorsed by 82 deputies in the 120-seat parliament #Technology #Europe #Crime #Argentina #Floods #Netherlands

Brain training app could help people with schizophrenia | Reuters

LONDON A "brain training" iPad game developed in Britain may improve the memory of patients with schizophrenia, helping them in their daily lives at home and at work, researchers said on Monday. Scientists at Cambridge University said tests on a small number of patients who played the game over four weeks found they had improvements in memory and learning. The game, "Wizard", is designed to help so-called episodic memory -- the type of memory needed to remember where you left your keys several hours ago, or to remember a few hours later where you parked your car in a multi-storey car park #Middle East #markets #Argentina #Floods #Entertainment

Libya probing guards seen in video beating jailed Gaddafi son| Reuters

TRIPOLI Libyan state prosecutors are investigating unidentified guards purportedly shown in a video beating a son of Muammar Gaddafi held in a Tripoli prison, a statement said on Monday. The video was posted a week after a Tripoli court sentenced Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam and eight former regime officials to death over crimes during the 2011 uprising that toppled his father, who was later captured and killed by rebels. Rights groups said the trial was riddled with legal flaws #United States #markets #Crime #Argentina #Latin America

The extension to Israelis of so-called "administration detention", a practice commonly applied to Palestinian militant suspects and condemned internationally, laid bare authorities' frustration at failing to curb Jewish ultra-nationalist attacks #Crime #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Foreign policy #opinion
